Made the lamb shank recipe from last week. Normally I would think to serve with risotto or a mashed potato type side because of the delicious sauce. However, my wife isn't eating rice, potatoes or pasta. Any suggestions?

I'm a big polenta fan - maybe that works. Was also thinking celery root puree or similar, but not sure. thanks!
roasted butternut squash?

Is she avoiding carbs? I found this recipe for cauliflower"rice" that I'm planning to try soon:
Mashed cauliflower? Or mashed squash?
Polenta or white beans cooked with herbs (lots of recipes out there) would also be good. Personally, when in doubt, I am always for potatoes, but that's just my own preference... Probably in my genes.

I heartily agree. White beans scented with an abundance of fresh rosemary and olive oil are very traditional.
I agree on the polenta- and making a "fresh" version with real corn in it would be good. I also love a crisp salad with shaved fennel, orange and herbs with lamb shanks- it cuts through the fat nicely. You could also make chickpea "fries" like these: https://food52.com/recipes.... I had added sweet potato to mine, but you could do kabocha squash too.
Hi - I would do my Vivaldi's Four Seasons Salad - it would be a good counterpoint to the lamb shanks - https://food52.com/recipes...
